An Art Filled (Floor to Ceiling) Life

Stillwater mosaic artist Judy Sell has an unusual location in her home for a gallery—her tiny first floor half bath. The gallery began with a cross-stitch piece by Sell’s daughter and has grown to include more than 20 pieces of work by artists she admires. The water closet gallery often invokes a chuckle. Her collection includes a paper cut by British artist Robert Ryan, seed art by Minnesota artist Liz Schrieber and an original illustration by Larry Hanson from Sell’s days as the advertising art director at the Star Tribune.

Sell’s arts-and-crafts style home is filled with artwork and inspiration. From her dining room walls filled with colorful vintage aluminum dishes to one of her own pieces—a larger-than-life mosaic lumberjack that greets visitors in the entryway—Sell has surrounded herself with creativity. She embodies artful living in abundance.
